My string arrangement

For my string arrangement I am using a song called ‘Justice will come’. The song was inspired by the social media campaign phenomenon KONY. The song was initially inspired by the KONY campaign but I changed it cause the Kony thing seemed a bit suss. It is an anti-violence song directed at the high powers who decide to bomb areas where there are innocent people.

I wanted the string section to sound simple but epic. I was inspired by Led Zepplin’s ‘Kasmir’. The cello part is quite simple and focused on hitting the root notes. I originally wrote the first violin part too high…and so I ended up bringing it down an octave. The first violin was focused on playing longer notes in a legato style. The second violin and viola had more motion in there part.

 

Here is the song without the strings  : )
